The Love I Need

Lord I ask you lord
don't take this girl away from me.
My life would be over if she'd go.

Lord let me be the kind of man I want to be.
And keep that woman with me
I love her so.

Cuz you know I'd never make it if she went away.
Like the air I breathe she's the love I need
to survive my day.
I could never get my feet up off the ground
so I'm askin' you lord let her stay around.

Love oh precious love
is like the flowers in the field.
How the petals scatter in the storm.
Words the hateful words we say to hurt the ones we love.
Hide out in the melodies in our song.

Cuz you know I'd never make it if she went away
like the air I breathe she's the love I need
to survive my day.
I could never get my feet up off the ground
so I'm askin' you lord let her stay around.
